Admiral of the Ocean Sea: A Life of Christopher Columbus
This book Presents Columbus in a realistic and non-idealised manner. It logically disputes theories that have been used to disparage Columbus, yet honestly portrays his treatment of the native Americans he encountered. Having spent 2 years travelling the sea routes that Columbus pioneered you get a sense of the adventure, excitement and boredom that Columbus and his men must of felt. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
